WRITE HERE / WRITE NOW

MAY 4 IN SALEM & MAY 11 IN CORVALLIS

We are back with TWO mini-conferences this year!

Our Write Here Write Now Salem event was such as succss last year that we are bringing it to Corvallis in 2019! 

Join us for WRITE HERE WRITE NOW.

Inspired by an event sponsored by the Seattle7Writers group, Write Here Write Now in Salem is a collaborative one-day conference that is focused on writers who have been brave enough to start writing, but have had problems finishing their work.

It is a fun, fast-paced day of mini-lessons, one-on-one author conferences, and lots and lots of writing.

Join us for support, tips, prompts, and advice from friendly writers, to make this day a one-of-a-kind writing experience you will never forget.

Register here for Corvallis and here for Salem.
